Why I Cried at My Wedding

Why I Cried at My Wedding

This may sound cheesy and totally unmanly, but I don’t really care.

When things get really hard and messy there’s one particular song I listen to. It’s a song that played at Emily and my wedding. There was a distinct moment during the ceremony while that song was playing that I had a moment of transcendence.

It was a moment when I knew with absolute certainty that one of the hardest struggles of my life up to that point was over. God had carried me through. It was like a million tons lifted off my shoulders. The clouds broke open and a light shined down a warmth on me I haven’t felt since. Emily was mine.

When things get hard I listen to that song. It reminds me.

A day is coming soon when the clouds are going to open. A weight is going to lift off my shoulders. It’s going to be like nothing I’ve ever felt before. The struggle will be over. God will have carried me through again. The prize will be mine. Jesus is going to show up. He’s going to make everything right. And I’ve got a feeling deep down that song is going to play.

…and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30
